    Those of us that are 'near' are about 4 hours away. Just to get to where he is, is more than 1 hour off road.

    It's about getting your butt and your gear back home to your family and not worrying about spending the money to do that.

    Unfortunately a lot of my buddies can never go camping when I really need to clear my head for the weekend (thank god the dogs are more than happy to join). If I only planned my trips around when people can join, I would spend every weekend watching TV. Like you stated, as long as you know how to walk your ass out of the woods and what you are signing yourself up for going alone, then more power to you.

    Hoping for a safe rescue and cheap repair bill.

    I go out a lot by myself. Just the nature of the beast like a lot of peolle have mentioned. I am just more careful and less wreckless when by myself.

    I don't own a Taco anymore.
    UPDATE: Good news and bad news...

    Jumping didn't get it started, sounds like internal failure somewhere from hydro-lock.

    Two offroaders are escorting him down the trail now to the main road where a tow truck can get to him.

    Darn... I know hindsight is 20/20 but he probably should have waited longer before he tried starting it...
